NBA Rumors: Why Celtics Might Have Difficult Trading Up In NBA Draft


Like most teams, the Boston Celtics probably would like to move up in the 2019 NBA Draft. And with four picks (three in the first round, including No. 14), Boston certainly has the assets to make a move.

Striking a deal won’t be easy, however.

There is little interest among lottery teams to trade down for extra picks in the draft, NBA insider Steve Kyler reported Monday. Consequently, the Celtics might need to part with established veterans if they want to climb up the draft board.

The Celtics hold the Nos. 14, 20 and 22 picks in the draft. They also own the 51st pick.

The 2019 NBA Draft is scheduled to start Thursday night at 7 p.m. ET.
